Shrimp burgers

Not a good photo, but the best I could find for free via Google (I've been camera-less for the last year). In any case, I've made combination shrimp and catfish burgers many times, but just decided to stick with the shrimp.
Start with 10 oz 21-25's. Peel and de-vein them and then slice them in half through where the vein was. Now chop them moderately fine. Shrimp are pretty sticky so it's not a problem for them to hold together while cooking.
Put them in a bowl and mix well with 2 Tbs mayonnaise and 2 Tbs bread crumbs, salt and pepper (and hot sauce if you're in the mood). Form into 2 burgers. Saute in butter for about 4 minutes per side or until cooked through.

I love this - going to commit to it for supper tonight - I have a hunch it's going to be a hit.

I never thought shrimp burgers would be something I would like but Mike Davis made some at a BBQ class he was teaching here in Knoxville last year and I thought they were great. He used a lot more fillers but also had a problem getting the right consistency at first, so your "less is more" approach seems valid.
